The Glory and a nice Trophy...maybe some prize cars.


Races will be run on the Bootleg Run track.

Race format and scoring

This will be a single-elimination tournament. A car will move on in the bracket only when it wins two races in a row. Cars will alternate lanes between each race.

The car that wins the final race will be declared the winner. Race host has final decision in all races.

Bracket seeding will be random but will try to avoid having an entrant race themselves, especially in the first round.


Cars are given a grace of 2g over the stated weight limit to account for variance in scales.

If a car fails to meet any of the restrictions listed above, the car will not qualify for tournament prizes. Offending cars will still race. Prize will go to the runner-up in the case of penalty car winning.

Cars that fail to run or fit on the track, or that happen to break during racing, will forfeit their matches. Cars that arrive broken will attempt to be repaired before the tournament. Cars that break during the tournament will not be repaired or replaced.

New question about 'Beetles' allowed. 

(New) '49 Beetle P/U, same wheelbase as original Beetle 

Kafer Racer, same wheelbase length as New Beetle 

seems Tooned version is really short and may want to try these before I decide? Thanks 

  • Negative on the Kafer...If the other is the Pick-Up then that would be a negative as well...feel free to shoot me some pics. — LeagueofSpeed

Tossing these two into the fray

Purple guy is a new build. Yellow is getting a second life. 

  • Looking good — LeagueofSpeed
  • Nice! I’ve been working on a few cars with non matching chassis. Ever since the Boneyard, I like it. — Jav74
  • I put a lot of faith in the chassis and I feel it can save me some modding time. — redlinederby
  • And the yellow Bug isn't a HW body, some MBX or oddball brand, but has a HW chassis. — redlinederby
  • This is what I’m applauding sir. It’s a way to have some extra weight even lower and also give some cool castings a fighting chance for the glory with a more appropriate track width for racing. My next 2 entries will probably be all hw but metal chassis swaps. — Jav74
  • Yellow one is definitely a Maisto off-road Beetle. Hayes tampos always on the casting — MDG_Racing

New build I'm working on. Since base swaps are allowed right? 

  • Ummm...No...but nice try MDG :) — LeagueofSpeed
  • The chassis is your choice...just don't have to much discrepancy...but keep the classic Beetle silhoutte — LeagueofSpeed
